SAO Astro REU

(Information updated: 2013 Aug 9)
Advisors/Projects: We have about 10 students per year working on
a variety of projects, mostly data analysis - subjects include Chandra, Spitzer, SMA, exoplanets..
but we also have theory and instrumentation projects. This REU is now completing its 20th year - you can see a summary of past students and projects at  http://hea-www.harvard.edu/~jcm/intern/intern.html

Acccess to Telescopes:  We don't have opportunities to work on professional level telescopes; observing for fun on the 100-year-old 9-inch refractor is available
Location: We're walking distance from Harvard Square, in Cambridge MA
Accomodations:  Students are housed in grad student dorms, walking distance from the Observatory
Distinctive Features:  As well as the research project, this REU emphasizes
all-round training with lessons on things like ADS and latex, colloquia, and career development opportunities

 

 

SAO Solar REU
